In 1910, UMMA's Alumni Memorial Hall opened with a groundbreaking exhibition organized by Detroit industrialist and art collector, Charles L. Freer. The exhibition attracted national attention for its innovative display of art from Western and Eastern traditions. This lecture by UM doctoral students Anna Wieck, Mei-Chen Pan, and Sarah Gothie sheds new light on Freer's legacy at UM. It is the culmination of a project initiated by the Friends of the Freer House with the UM Museum Studies Program. Reception and tours of Freer House will follow the lecture. Sponsored by the Friends of the Freer House, UMMA, and the UM Museum Studies Program. For additional information, please visit: http://mpsi.wayne.edu/freer-events.php
